I was absolutely overwhelmed with the amount of support I received during the cover reveal of The Sister. Thank you so much everyone who liked, commented and shared. I really appreciate it.
I’ve been tied to this bed before, but not like this. Not with pain throbbing behind my temples and blood trickling down my forehead.
I prise my eyelids open. A shape shifts and blurs in my vision.
‘You’re awake.’ He snaps on gloves. ‘You shouldn’t have betrayed me, Ruth.’
I want to tell him I didn’t but the words stick in my throat. I can’t tell him who did. I just can’t.
His hands snake around my neck. He squeezes his fingers and I want to tell him everything, but it’s too late.
I see black.
Brilliant, brilliant light.
